Glass Sculpture from Clay Sketch

Creating our glass sculpture begins with a thought, idea, and concept of direction. I develop these thoughts and ideas in a number of ways before actually creating them in glass. Almost everything I make has had its origin in the form of  simple quick sketches on paper. These quick sketches may be derived from a past glass sculpture series I want to explore further.

Probably the top question besides, “What is it?” that is often asked of an artist, would be, “What is your inspiration?” Whether it is a person writing an article about my artwork, or a curious person just making light conversation… I have had to answer that question countless times. It’s not that I don’t want to answer it, or that I don’t have an answer.  The question can be tricky because people generally want a short...
